Cuchillo Jamonero (Ham Slicer)
A Jamon, a beautifully cured leg of pig is an incredible touch at a party, and a crucial part of a good Tapas restaurant. The ham-slicing knife known as the “Cuchillo Jamonero” is crucial to achieving paper-thin, textured sliced of the cured meat. When preparing Jamon, it is important to have a ham-stand or “Jamonera”to secure the leg properly. The flexible knife allows for maximum control when working around any part of the leg.

Arcos Hermanos S.A.
The brand officially began in 1745 with Juan Arcos, who forged blades now found in the National Archeological Museum in Madrid. The craft continued through the family line until Gregoria Arcos Aroco who turned the small hand-forging shop into a fully mechanized production shop for high-quality spanish blades in 1875. One hundred years down the road, his descendant Gregorio Arcos Villanueva desired more and began the expansion of Arcos into the International brand that it is today. Through nearly 300 years of manufacturing, the family has never ceased their innovation.
